The global silo bags market is expected to reach at a CAGR of 7% during the forecast period 2021 to 2030. Silo bags are an easy means for on-farm segregation of commodities, thereby providing identity preservation, which is likely to augment the expansion of silo bags market in the years to come.
Packaging plays an important role for any product, as it is the first touch and visual point for customers. In addition to its role in marketing, packaging is vital for bulk shipping and protection. The silo bags market is driven by greater awareness about grain wastage during the process of cultivation. The population explosion in emerging economies is creating huge pressure on the overall production of crops. Silo bags can provide the necessary protection, allowing farmers to meet the increasing demand for crops. The relative cost-effectiveness of silo bags is poised to fuel demand in the silo bags market during the forecast period.
The market is estimated to be propelled due to their advantage of simplifying harvest logistics by providing flexible storage at a suitable location especially when permanent storage is a constraint.
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused supply chain disruptions, but food producers are adopting social distancing measures while loading and unloading trucks and containers. Handling, grading, and packaging needs are being undertaken by food producers with the help of silo bags to ensure food security. The silo bags market is advancing with the proliferation of IoT and blockchain technologies. However, silo bags are subject to frequent breakage of the plastic film, which leads to rodent attacks and food losses. Hence, companies should educate food producers to optimize their storage practices in order to avoid food wastage. Cutting-edge silo loading systems are being mobilized in multiple storage locations.
Preference for Convenience Packaging Boosts Silo Bags Market
A shift toward convenience packaging is assessed to be a prominent driver for the silo bags market. Modern farmers are discerning customers who need low cost, high performance, and flexible plastic sheets that can fit in a limited amount of space. This has led to innovative and creative solutions in the silo bags market. There is a strong demand for both smaller as well as medium-sized silo bags, as they improve the farmer’s ability to wait until there is a better time to process, handle, and deliver grains.
With frequent technology upgrades, different types of machines such as rotary bagger machines are used to fill grains in silo bags. The machine has a grid at the end of the sealed bag that builds up a certain amount of pressure while filling up the bag. The other types of baggers are grinder hopper and bagger, truck bagger, and farm bagger hopper and auger.
Proliferation of IoT in Agroindustry Bolsters Market Growth
The silo bags market is expected to expand at a growth of 7% during the assessment period. With the proliferation of IoT (Internet of Things) in the agricultural industry, producers are harnessing the advantages of the technology. For instance, Wiagro— a provider of wireless solutions for agriculture, is manufacturing smart silo bags that facilitate real-time monitoring of grains inside the bag with the help of the IoT technology.
Blockchain-based traceability platforms are bringing a significant change in the silo bags market. These platforms help in efficient transportation and reduce food losses worldwide. Moreover, producers are able to access information regarding food grains from remote locations through online capabilities. Blockchain-based traceability platforms are helping producers to store information that plays a key role in post-harvest storage processes. Thus, the blockchain technology is ensuring reliability in grain quality.
Silo Bags or Gunny Bags: Which Are Better?
Silo bags are a more cost-efficient solution as compared to gunny bags for grain storage. However, limited unitary capacity of silo bags and the need for large land area for storage are some of its disadvantages. As such, silo bags can be stored under optimal conditions and this advantage is helping manufacturers in the silo bags market to increase unit uptake.
Apart from grain storage, companies in the silo bags market are expanding their business in composting applications. Proper management of organic waste is an indispensable part of farming and harvesting activities. Farmers are increasingly using silo bags for proper management of organic waste. Silo bags are eliminating concerns regarding liquid spills and undesirable odors. The growing demand for closed composting systems has led to increased sales of silo bags.
Food Security and Demand for Good Grain Quality Creating Business Opportunities
The silo bags market is projected to witness a Y-o-Y growth during the forecast period. Cutting-edge silo loading systems are contributing toward market growth. Lorandi Silos— a specialist in material handling and storage, is manufacturing robust silo loading systems that can be moved by forklift for loading applications at multiple locations.
The increasing world population has stressed the importance of food security. This can be achieved with silo bags that help to maintain the quality of grains. With increasing yields in the upcoming years, manufacturers in the silo bags market need to boost their output capacities in order to safely distribute food grains worldwide. Due to the growing demand for good grain quality, producers are looking for ways to optimize their storage facilities.
Changing Demographics Impact Silo Bags Market
Demographics have an outsized influence on the global silos market and motivate the grain storage industry, culminating in the growth of the silo bags market. The emphasis of the silo bags market is to target small-scale farmers who typically cultivate crops in a paddock. Key stakeholders in the silo bags market are recommended to cater to the need of smaller farmers over their larger counterparts as a first priority. Silo bag manufacturers can work on products that serve smaller farmers and fulfill their requirements one of which is storage at the site of harvest, thereby substantially reducing the cost of transportation.
